Title: Gulliver's Travels Summary: A doctor washes ashore on an island inhabited by little people. Directed by: Dave Fleischer Actors: Jessica Dragonette, Lanny Ross, Pinto Colvig Production Company: Fleischer Studios Release Date: 22 December 1939 (USA) Aspect Ratio: 1.37 : 1
Gulliver washes ashore on Lilliput and attempts to prevent war between that tiny kingdom and its equally minuscule rival, Blefuscu, as well as smooth the way for the romance between the Princess and Prince of the opposing lands. In this he is alternately aided and hampered by the Lilliputian town crier and general fussbudget, Gabby. A life-threatening situation develops when the bumbling trio of Blefuscu spies, Sneak, Snoop, and Snitch, manage to steal Gulliver's pistol.

I wondered if this was an alternate rendering of the story of Gulliver. Loved the comments!

Gosh, I thought the poor guy had enough problems, now he's an alcoholic, too?

Hollywood really messes up the classics!
I've read "Gulliver's Travels" and there was nothing in it about an alcoholic move star or a young singer on the rise. However, I did see "A Star is Born", where Janet Gaynor and Fredric March meet up with the Lilliputians. :D

This makes eight.
Which is good because having only seven copies of this movie available here would just be crazy. And so would getting the description right.
